Happy Mother's Day

My Mom used to read children's books aloud for me. In fact, she reads the same story twice or more, with her clear, articulate and well-carrying voice, unlike mine.

This covered low table is KOTATSU, with a heat source underneath, which plays a big role at home in the winter season. There was a rattan basket filled with MIKAN oranges (mandarins) within arm's reach. Do you happen to know if it was too many oranges that made my hands orange yellow, by the way ?

 母は 絵本の読み聞かせをよくしてくれました。同じ話を2回以上続けて読んでくれるんです。私と違って滑舌の良いよく通る声で。
